Wellness Wednesday: The Paleo Diet

 

The Paleo Diet puts the focus on eating real, natural, whole foods that have gone through little or no processing to get on your plate.  You eat plants and animals. We’re talking meats, fish, eggs, greens, veggies, fruits, and nuts.

The philosophy behind the Paleo Diet: experts took note of our modern-day behavior and thought, if obesity and disease rates are rising as quickly as processed foods are flying off shelves, maybe we should go back to our roots and eat like our early ancestors did?

Simply put: “If a caveman didn’t eat it, neither should you.”

Some benefits of going Paleo: 

  • Weight loss

  • Feeling pleasantly full for longer periods of time

  • Less sugar cravings

  • Clearer skin

  • Increase in energy

  • Physically more muscular

  • Improved digestion

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Healthier relationship with food

Below are a list of things you CAN eat:

  • Chicken

  • Fish

  • Red meat

  • Pork

  • Eggs

  • Vegetables

  • Fruits

  • Nuts

  • Natural oils

  • Healthy fats

  • Natural sweeteners

Pro tip: Prioritize organic, grass-fed meats and free-range eggs, and opt for wild-caught seafood and organic vegetables.

Foods that are “OFF LIMITS”:

  • Processed foods

  • Refined sugar

  • Refined carbs

  • Legumes

  • Dairy

  • Grains

  • Vegetable oils

Keep in mind when starting a Paleo Diet that there are many variations and that there is no such thing as a perfect Paleo Diet plan.  It’s about finding the Paleo plan that works best for you.

Stay tuned for the next Paleo Course at CrossFit San Ramon…
